It had a carnival feel, but with some Eagles flavor.

Fans got a chance to play like the pros by returning punts, get taped in the training room, and even get a front row seat for the cheerleaders.

The longest lines were in the club suites where Donovan McNabb was high fiving fans.

"It's an enjoyable time, it's an opportunity for the kids to see us up close and personal to see that we are normal human beings just like them, we were once in their shoes," Donovan McNabb said.

Shawn Andrews, whose fight with depression has been well publicized, took the time to mingle with the fans.

The Pro Bowl guard says he's in good spirits and the fans have been great.

"It's been nothing but positive, 100-percent across the board. It's been love and it's been acceptance and it makes you feel good," Shawn Andrews said.

The event took place up until 8:00 p.m. Sunday night.
